Sheet metal offers a cost-effective way to fabricate product device panels, boxes and cases for a variety of applications. Not only we build enclosures of all styles, including rackmounts, “U” and “L” shapes, but also consoles and consolets.

Applications of Forming Services


The chassis fabricated are typically used to house electro-mechanical controls, from small handheld devices to large industrial equipment. All chassis are built to critical dimensions to ensure hole pattern alignment between parts.


Our network also builds custom brackets and miscellaneous sheet metal components, it is well-suited for either lightweight applications or when a high degree of corrosion-resistance is needed. All hardware and fasteners that are needed can be fully built in.
